Online Anxiety Therapy

Online Anxiety Counseling in California | Online Anxiety Treatment in California

Tired of battling with unrelenting anxiety?

You wake up cranky and exhausted after yet another sleepless night.

As soon as you get in the shower, scary and intrusive thoughts start barging in—the endless to-dos, the worst-case scenarios, and what if you can’t perform how you are expected to?

You try to go about your day pretending that crippling companion is not there. Yet you are on edge, unable to focus, and waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Body sensations may enter the equation. Your heart rate might spike up, muscles become tense, and breathing gets shallow. All of a sudden, your palms start sweating and shaking. How can you make it stop?

Drinking or numbing yourself may tame the chaos for a bit, but then you likely realize these toxic habits make it worse. Or maybe you try typical self-care tips, but they don’t seem to work long-term. No matter what you do, you might feel restless, trapped, and out of control.

Break free from worry and fear.

Power Talk Therapy provides online therapy for anxiety to adults in California, among other counseling services.

You might be caught up in the frustrating loop of anxiety. But you can step out of this spiral by taking space to understand and challenge yourself. With the support of a qualified anxiety therapist, you can feel calm and in command of your journey.

Let us help you restore harmony and freedom in your life.

What is anxiety?

Anxiety is your mind-body’s response to a distressing, worrisome, or uncertain situation.

Feeling nervous or uneasy when giving a presentation, asking your loved one to marry you, or making a big decision is entirely natural. It may be temporary, harmless, and even encourage you to stay sharp and focused as you accomplish your goal.

But if anxiety is extreme, everlasting, and all-consuming, it becomes harder to handle. It might permeate all areas of your life (e.g., home, school, work, family, relationships) and jeopardize your functioning.

While anxiety may show up unexpectedly, common risk factors include:

  • Family or individual history of anxiety and/or other mental health challenges (e.g., depression)
  • Side effects of medications
  • Stressful event(s), ongoing stress, or significant life changes
  • Trauma
  • Underlying medical conditions (e.g., thyroid problems, chronic pain, respiratory disorders)

What is online therapy for anxiety?

Online anxiety therapy or anxiety counseling centers on helping you gain insight into your anxiety, manage debilitating symptoms, and attain sustainable coping strategies.

You’ll work with a therapist specializing in anxiety treatment within a secure telehealth room, at a time and from a place that suits you.

Do you need therapy for anxiety?

You might think living with symptoms of severe, unhealthy anxiety is something you “have to do”—part of the always-on, keep pushing, and be your best at all times mindset. Or perhaps you’ve tried to steer the ebbs and flows, only to find yourself back to square one.

Signs of unhealthy anxiety include:

  • Accelerated heart rate
  • Constant worries, fear, or dread
  • Difficulty focusing
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability or drastic mood swings
  • Nausea or dizziness
  • Overwhelming feelings
  • Pain or tension
  • Ruminating thoughts
  • Short or shallow breathing
  • Sleep issues
  • Sweating and trembling

If you or someone you love is struggling with any of the above signs of anxiety, don’t ignore them. Talking to a therapist can unlock the peace of mind you long for.

How can online therapy help with anxiety?

Getting to the core of your fear

Anxiety might be wildly confusing. Why did it start? Is it an inherent part of who you are, or did it come along due to something else? And why won’t it go away?

Online therapy gives you the place and expert guidance to unveil what’s at the root of your anxiety—how it shows up, what sparks it, how it’s impacting you and others, and the potential connections. You’ll begin to put the puzzle pieces together to understand yourself, cultivate compassion, and become more present.

Reframing and transforming your experience

Your anxiety may be related to distorted beliefs, negative emotions, or problematic practices so deeply ingrained in you that you take them as facts or the way life is supposed to be.

Your online anxiety therapist will motivate you to confront, question, and reframe narratives or habits that may not serve you. You’ll identify what’s provoking or heightening your symptoms and the changes you can adopt to address them.

Gaining powerful tools to self-soothe

While self-knowledge and growth may already bring some relief, anxiety might continue to come and go carrying unforeseen challenges.

That’s why we teach stress management techniques and self-soothing tools tailored to your needs and personality (e.g., grounding, breathwork, boundary setting). You’ll be able to tune into yourself, deal with stressors, and regain stability when anxiety comes in.

Online anxiety therapy is a convenient way to access treatment from the comfort of your home, office, or preferred location. If the thought of going to a therapist’s office or seeing a counselor in person increases your anxiety, this might be a great option to explore.
